StudioRCC is more than a low-cost recording facility – we offer exciting learning and creative workshops and courses in music and sound production for free! The courses are provided by facilitators currently working within the Aboriginal/Australian music and film industry.

Our workshops are designed for all creative levels from beginners to intermediate and advanced. We provide a welcoming environment for artists to come together to learn/create with the opportunity to perform for a live audience at the family and cultural day event every 2 months and at upcoming local festivals.
